Looking for a case

I am thinking about building a new desktop, and I was wondering about any good ATX cases that you would recommend.

I suppose that depends on what you're putting in it, and what you want out of it. ;]

I used a Thermaltake Shark for my last build - decent aluminum case, large enough for pretty much anything you'd event want or need, and won't break the bank. I built a machine for a friend of mine using a Kandalf - beautiful, sturdy tower, enough air for casual gaming, but as you would expect from a steel case, the damn thing is heavy!

I have an Antec Nine Hundred sitting in the corner of my office right now, eager to be filled after my next paycheck - for all the lame hype surrounding it, I couldn't overlook the air cooling potential, easy-to-access USB/audio on the top, and lack of a door (I'm looking at building a 5.25" bay-mounted LCD panel, as a way to introduce myself to modding). It isn't as roomy as the Shark, but it's still enough to house an ATX board.

What do your specs look like, by chance?

I recommend the Antec 900 or Antec 1200.
Both have very good cooling and look pretty awesome.
Antec 1200 is only if you have money to spend.
900 would prob be the way to go.

No. Not an Antec 1200, thats a Server Case <_<.

Go for an Antec 900. has all your essentials. Plus the price is great for it. I own an Antec 900 and love it. Great case for whatever you need it for, mainly a gaming case, but if you looking to overclock, Antec 900 is the way to go. Now if your looking on running a Server go get an Antec 1200 if not a 900 is fine, and the 1200 wouldnt be neccesary.
